Today is the first day of Autumn/Fall. I love the crisp cool air we are beginning to feel. The leaves are starting to change. For some it's the beginning of football. But me I also love a good State Fair. We haven't went to one in a couple of years. But when I think about one. It's not only the rides, or the games. It's the food. The funnel cakes, candy apples, cotton candy, Philly cheese steak sandwiches, corn dogs, caramel corn, turkey legs, and etc.
I didn't realize it had been so long since we had been to a Fall Festival or State Fair. These are pics from a local Fall Festival.
My first one is my very most favorite.
2 beaten eggs
1 1/2 Cups milk
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Cups cooking oil
In small bowl, combine beaten eggs, and mik. In large mixing bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Add egg mixture to dry mixture. Beat until smooth.
In an 8-inch skillet, heat cooking oil to 360. Using a finger to cover the bottom opening of a funnel with a 1/2 inch spout (inside diameter) pour about 1/2 cup of batter into the funnel. Remove finger, and release batter into hot oil, moving funnel in a circular motion to form a spiral.
Cook about 2 1/2 minutes or until golden brown. Using 2 wide metal spatulas, carefully turn cake over. Cook about a minute more. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Repeat with remaining batter. Makes 4-5 cakes.
Can also use other toppings if so desired. Cinnamon, and sugar, whipped crem and strawberries, chocolate syrup, etc.
